Curt Siodmak (The Magnetic Monster
, Love Slaves of the Amazons
) directs Bride of the Gorilla
, a 50s trash B-movie set on a plantation in the depths of the Amazon.
A tale of madness in the wilds, the film centres around plantation manager Barney Chavez (Raymond Burr) who gets into a fatal fight with his employer, and then moves in on the man's gorgeous widow (Barbara Payton).
Cursed by an old woman on the plantation, he sees himself turning into a gorilla, and struggles to control his primal instincts with little success.
